HOUSTON — A Texas indemnity company is suing a trucking business, alleging it failed to deliver a purchased product in good condition.

Starr Indemnity & Liability Company filed a lawsuit May 9, in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Paulao Trucking LLC of Arlington, alleging liability and negligence.
